Who names these things?
Pretty darned good-though not great, well worth it though.
Good acting and a nearly plausible plot make it work. It was almost like "Jimmy Olsen Rides the Rails" (No, there's no such film).
Some of it was just a bit too white-bread to totally buy into, but other parts were too gritty and a bleak commentary on human nature, the result being a good enough balance of the two to make it a winner.

Good acting with a not so good script and even worse title
The acting in most of this movie is excellent and it makes me wonder why they gave it such a crappy title. The script had potential to be pretty good, but was ruined with some of the sleezy parts and the ending is a bit more than I cared to stomach, but I made it. Still this isn't that bad of a movie.
Danny is a drifter or wannabe drifter who gets robbed in the beginning, but Bix comes to the rescue and gives his money back and the two hook up and land in the small town of Sherman where Bix falls for the girl Carrie working in a dinner. Carrie falls head over heels, but Bix wants to leave. The shows creepy character Jesse makes the very predictable move on Carrie and it just goes to hell from there on out.
It's still worth watchimg even if you figure out exactly what's coming next just because Jesse is the movies dead giveaway.
2 stars for great acting..
Brett Halsey...Bix Dugan
Joyce Meadows...Carrie Anders
Lowell Brown...Danny Winslow
Bill Coontz...Bill Coontz (as William Coontz)
Emile Meyer...Cal Anders
Del Monroe...Mugger in Train Yard
